Samia Longchambon from Coronation Street cut a glamorous figure while filming funeral scenes for the Salford soap on Friday.
The actress, 36, shook a sneaky mini dress as she prepared to film heartbreaking new scenes shortly after she signed a new contract to stay on the soap after the recent walk from several major stars.
The star, which Maria Connor plays in the ITV soap, was accompanied by co-star Alexandra Mardell, 25, in a church after the death of the character of Alexandra, the father of Emma Brooker.

Samia has combined her black ensemble with taupe and golden sandals and has complemented her glamorous look with sunglasses with a golden rim.
The marine siren made use of her equipment and added a large gray handbag and a pair of delicate gold jewelry.
Her fellow actress Alexandra, who recently won the Best Newcomer prize at the British Soap Awards for her performance as hairdresser Emma Brooker, also rocked a black ensemble for the shoot.
The star wore a long black coat with white trim, which she combined with a black mini dress and nude shoes.

The couple filmed scenes for the funeral of Emma & # 39; s father, with the unyielding stylist who did not know that her real father is in fact co-resident and local taxi driver Steve McDonald.
She accompanied Emma & # 39; s brother Morgan Middleton, who was last seen as a baby on the cobblestones 21 years ago after their mother Fiona Middleton had fled the street.
The funeral of the man who raised Emma and Morgan will undoubtedly tie in with the return of soap star Angela Griffin, who played salon boss Fiona.

Referring to the reports of a crisis, following a number of cast members leaving since January, the star said: & If a new producer comes in, there will always be a change. I am stuck. I just signed up for another year. & # 39;
Daniel's comments come after it was reported that & # 39; bad wages and exhausting hours & # 39; were to blame for seven cast members who stopped the soap in three months.
Sources told The Irish sun that the recent increase in departure comes from a & # 39; toxic atmosphere & # 39; backstage, after Lucy Fallon announced in early May that she would leave the soap in 2020.
Hang out: The actor, who joined the soap in December 2016, also added that there is no crisis after seven stars, recently announced that they are leaving the show.
It comes when Lucy joins fellow stars Faye Brookes, Kym Marsh and Katie McGlynn who have decided to leave the soap in the coming months because they hope to achieve the same success as former stars Michelle Keegan and Katherine Kelly.
Lucy announced that she had left Coronation Street four years after she first joined the cast as a teenager Bethany Platt.
In a statement she told MailOnline: & # 39; After the most incredible 4 years, I made the extremely difficult decision to leave Coronation Street at the end of my contract in 2020.

The star added: & I am so grateful to Iain and everyone on Coronation Street, I owe them everything and I will miss them immensely. & # 39;
Lucy then continued to clarify her decision in a tweet and wrote: “My decision to leave was made in August last year and has nothing to do with SOMEONE on Coronation Street. I have not made it lightly and I will miss every person there. & # 39;

It was also previously claimed that returning actor Liam Bairstow would take a break in the soap when he went to social media to announce that he had packed film rolls like Alex Warner.

Bye! Rana left Corrie in March after being brutally murdered in the collapse of the roof of the underworld
Since then it has been known that there has been upset behind the scenes, because many newer stars of the soap are not happy with the huge differences in salary.
The publication claimed that veteran cast members such as William Roache (Ken Barlow) at an astonishing £ 250,000 a year, while newcomers are only paid £ 50,000, with their reimbursement depending on appearance.
Simon Gregson (who plays Steve McDonald) allegedly earns around £ 150,000 and Michael Le Vell (Kevin Webster) stands at a reported £ 170,000.
New pastures: Tristan also tweeted that he will leave Corrie later this year, four years after joining Tracy Barlow's ex-husband
A source added that the pay differences are a & # 39; open secret & # 39; have been under the cast, with many stars earning more money for much less screen time.
They said: & # 39; Lucy is only the last to be tired of seeing big chances lost because Corrie won't let her take on. & # 39;
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Coronation Street for comments.
First suspect! The handsome chef is currently a prime suspect in the collapse of the underworld
The publication also claims that even less important stars on BBC rival EastEnders earn more money than Corrie's counterparts.
This is also despite the fact that EastEnders sees lower viewing figures than its ITV rivals and produces four episodes per week for Corrie & # 39; s six.
It is also claimed that cast members ask demanding producers to lift a ban on the appearance of stars in panto, which has enabled actors to earn a reported £ 200,000 in recent years.
